More than a week after its official debut at the Geneva Motor Show, the McLaren Senna hypercar made its first track debut at the 76th Annual Goodwood Memberâ€™s Meeting Saturday. Sadly, McLarenâ€™s claim that the Senna is the “most track-concentrated road car yet” wasnâ€™t put to the test during the carâ€™s debut. The procession merely puttered around the race track, only letting loose a little bit at 5 minutes, 30 seconds. We could have also done without that ill-informed commentary from the announcers.
Goodwoodâ€™s official Youtube channel captured the Sennaâ€™s appearance on the track as well as the rest of the Goodwood “76MM” festivities, a weekend at the Goodwood Circuit in Sussex, England, devoted to racing some of the rarest and most expensive cars out there.
Since the Memberâ€™s Meeting is mostly filled with vintage race cars, the Senna was the youngest one at the track, making its debut flanked by McLarenâ€™s entire production car lineup. Every McLaren series was well represented in the supercar parade, from the 570 group in McLarenâ€™s entry-level Sports Series range to Sennaâ€™s sister the Ultimate Series hypercar, the P1.
Weâ€™re hoping the Senna will put its new aerodynamics where its mouth is soon and start setting some serious lap records. Itâ€™s the perfect track monster to take on the new Mercedes-AMG Project ONE, which Autocar reports is gearing up to smash the production car lap record at the Nurburgring later this year.
